Month in Review for February 2017: Looking Forward to Spring

Leia's nickname is Twigs, for obvious leg-size-related reasons
I hate to repeat myself, but February is another month I'm glad is over. I had internet problems, I had to go to SLC twice for my various neuro appointments, and I had a really bad reading slump. In fact, the book I thought I'd finish before the month was over ended up turning into a hate read and halfway through I gave up on it.

I'm a bit excited for March because I can now start planting my seeds again (I enjoy growing plants, flowers, herbs, etc.). It's also a bit warmer than February, though we aren't immune to late snow storms here. Although I have another test coming up soon, I consider it one step closer to getting help with my walking and numbness issues.

Favorite of the Month: Dust Tracks on a Road by Zora Neale Hurston- she lived a fascinating life and her prose still permeated her autobio.
Least Favorite of the Month: Beauty and the Blacksmith (Spindle Cove #3.5) by Tessa Dare- it wasn't nearly as bad as the one I gave up on halfway through, but there was nothing unique about it.
Most Interesting of the Month (or Book I Learned the Most From): Dust Tracks on a Road by Zora Neale Hurston- not that I had much to choose from in these categories this month, but I usually don't read a book slowly on purpose. I felt I had to with this book to absorb all it had to offer.

Planning to Read in March:

After dumping the book that was a hate read, I only feel comfortable rereading- so I reread Burn For Me (and my review stands up to the second read- I feel the same way about it). I just want to read more books- period. I'm hoping I'll come into some better ones for me that won't leave me with a bad taste in my mouth like the hate read did.

Happy Non-Hate Reading!


  1. I re-read Burn for me this year too! Can't wait for the two sequels this year.

    1. Yes- that's why I reread too! I pre-ordered both of them, since Ilona Andrews never seems to pen a book I don't like.

  2. I still have not read any Hurston. I am awful. I am looking forward to planting, too! I want to steal Leia. She is too damn cute. :)

    1. My mom would probably like you to have Leia some days because she can be naughty- just today she fetched a bar of soap, which is much less innocuous than some other things she's done. ;) I hope you get to your new Hurston ebook and planting!
